Do you dream “Broken Dreams?”

Tonight, in the main event of “NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III,” Drew McIntyre defeated Bobby Roode to become the new NXT Champion. This is his first run with the championship.

The finish came when Roode attempted to hit his third Glorious DDT of the match, but McIntyre countered with the Claymore to pickup the victory.

McIntyre made his return to WWE on April 1 when he was spotted in the crowd at “NXT Takeover: Orlando.” A couple of weeks later, he made his official return to the brand, debuting on NXT and defeating Oney Lorcan.

Roode had been the NXT Champion since January 28 of this year, when he defeated Shinsuke Nakamura for the title at “NXT Takeover: San Antonio.”

Editor’s Note:

I have to admit that I was a little bit shocked by this, but at the same time am very happy for “The Chosen One.” I had always been a McIntyre fan, and was thrilled when he re-invented himself and made his return to WWE. Congratulations to a very deserving new NXT Champion!
